The 5th International Conference on Nanomaterials by Severe Plastic Deformation (NanoSPD5) will be held on March 21 - 25, 2011, in Nanjing, an ancient and also a modern city in the eastern part of China. The conference will be organized by Nanjing Univeristy of Science and Technology. On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to participate in NanoSPD5. The conference will cover processing, microstructural characterization, properties and applications of ultrafine-grained and nanostructured materials processed by plastic deformation.
The NanoSPD conference series started from Moscow in 1999, traveled through Vienna in 2002, Fukuoka in 2005 and Goslar in 2008, and now it will step on the earth of an ancient land where an old form of NanoSPD, BAILIAN steel, was developed over 2000 years ago. Deformation processing for advanced materials with ultrafine- and nano-structures and having significantly improved properties has developed as one of the most promising frontiers of materials science and technology. It has now reached the stage of product innovation and commercialization. This in turn requires a deeper understanding of the fundamentals and principles of low-cost high efficient NanoSPD processing. These new challenges are now attracting the interests of materials scientists and engineers from many different areas.
Nanjing, situated amid a hilly area in the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, is the seat of 6 dynasties in Chinese history, and it was awarded the title of "Famous Historic and Culture City" by the State Council. Nanjing is also a famous tourist city, with a favorable geographical location, unique landscape, and historical sites. Among them, Ming Xiao Ling Mausoleum, a world cultural heritage site by UNESCO, is renowned for its unique design, eminent status, amazing beauty and magnificent scale.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Nanjing.
